Living and working in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Singapore, both Jeff and Joel, are skilled in heightening the Asian food experience with food that is authentic and brings the richness and essence of Asia to your table. Having first-hand knowledge and speaking the local languages has enabled them to take rural and local family secrets and recipes and convert them into a stunning repertoire that is the ExpatAsia menu, hitting all the notes of sweet, sour, salty, fragrant, spicy, tart and exotic.

Picture this: your kitchen, usually so familiar, is suddenly alive with the buzz of expert cooking.

The moment they start, the air fills with mouth-watering aromas that build anticipation for what’s to come. It’s not just about eating; it’s about experiencing. Each dish is a conversation starter, a blend of traditional Asian flavors with their own unique twist. Your guests won’t just be talking about the delicious food.

Thank you Joel for the great entertainment and food you brought to our anniversary party. My friends really liked getting involved and helping you in the kitchen. Sorry I spilt the sauce on the floor but that you came up with another one so fast. Crazy…. We will call on you again.

We had the best dinner party ever. As a Dutch person I have fond memories of Indonesian style Rijsttafel dinners growing up and your menu did not disappoint. The spices, flavors and presentation was magnificent. It was truly an authentic Asian cuisine experience.
